Misdemeanors

The following crimes are considered to be Misdemeanors under Vorhal Law. Misdemeanors are typically handled by means of the arresting officer presenting the accused to the Captain of the Guard, or acting Duty Captain of the Quarter. The allegations against the accused are then documented, evidence or confiscated materials seized and catalogued, and the accused must immediately pay any relevant fines or serve any required jail time. While this process tends to be the norm, procedures have been known to vary in unique cases. Class I Misdemeanors are mild infractions that are more frequently observed than other crimes. Class II Misdemeanors are more serious offenses that bear more stringent punishments. A Class III Misdemeanor is a heinous offense that borders on Felony charges.

Felonies

The following crimes are considered to be Felonies under Vorhal Law. Felonies are typically handled by means of the arresting officer presenting the accused to the Captain of the Guard, or acting Duty Captain of the Quarter. The allegations against the accused are then documented, evidence or confiscated materials seized and catalogued, and the accused is immediately incarcerated pending a trial. Those found guilty of the allegations are assessed any relevant fines, retained in jail for the duration of their sentence, and marked with a brand upon their back that is indicative of their transgressions. While this process tends to be the norm, procedures have been known to vary in unique cases. Class I Felonies are severe crimes that are substantially more offensive than any Misdemeanors. Class II Felonies are reprehensible crimes that draw the ire of nearly all civilized society. A Class III Felony is a heinous offense that is unthinkable to even some of the most hardened criminals.

Aggravations and Leniencies

The following conditions, when accompanying a crime, may serve to either aggravate the offense, or provide a measure of leniency in sentencing. Aggravations typically increase the maximum assessable fine and jail time by one half of the base penalties of the accused’s primary offense. For every two aggravations, the base Class of a crime increases by one step. Additional aggravations following an increase in Class will assess additional fines and jail times based on the standard established in the new Class. Sufficient aggravations may cause a crime that was originally a Misdemeanor to instead become a Felony. Leniencies typically reduce the maximum assessable fine and jail time by one half of the base penalties of the accused’s primary offense. For every two leniencies, the base Class of a crime decreases by one step. Additional leniencies following a decrease in Class will reduce the maximum fines and jail time based on the standard established in the new Class.
